Partake as doth the Bee,
Abstemiously.
The Rose is an Estate —
In Sicily.

    she is saying we should live life to the fullest.to get all we can out of life for the short time we are here on earth.like when bees go from flower to flower gathering pollen to make honey they are able to feed themselves and fertilize the plants so they are a never ending source of life.
